SHR Laser Hair Removal
Problems Related To Shaving, Waxing, etc.
WAXING CAUSES HYPERPIGMENTATION
Ingrown Hairs & Razor Bumps
Laser hair removal treatments, apart from helping to get rid of unwanted hair, can also be used to treat conditions related to inflammation of the hair follicle such as ingrown hair and razor bumps.
In some cases, pustules accompany the bumps, making them look like acne. Left untreated or treated improperly, ingrown hairs and razor bumps can lead to hyperpigmentation, pain and scarring—both physical and emotional. By destroying the hair follicle with lasers or IPL, any related inflammation is destroyed.
SHR Laser Hair Removal
SHR Diode 808 nm Laser Hair Removal is the established Gold Standard in laser hair removal treatments, providing safe and more effective results as compared to other methods of laser and light-based hair removal.
Other laser hair removal treatments are performed with the help of SHR Intense Pulse Light (SHR IPL) technology as well as E-Light technology, which is a combination of IPL and Radio-Frequency technologies.
Multiple treatment sessions with laser and E-Light (IPL + RF) technologies have shown to provide long-term reduction of hair. But the best results have been obtained by the application of SHR Diode 808 nm Laser Technology for hair removal.
In general, 6 to 8 laser treatment sessions have been shown to give up to 80 % of no hair regrowth.
After 6-8 sessions, the rest of hair that persists and grows is the left 10-20%, whcih may need a few more sessions in order to reach the condition of complete hair removal. The average number of treatment sessions for people of Asian and African origin may vary between ten (10) to fifteen (15). If the person has got hormonal problems, she/he may need more than fifteen (15) sessions. It is strongly recommended not to stop treatment before reaching the final results of no visible hair growth. Otherwise all efforts would have been a waste of time, efforts and money. The final result is obtained when only vellus hair is left on the treated skin. Vellus hair is normally so thin that it is hardly visible.
Advanced laser and light-based treatments for permanent hair removal gives absolutely no harmful side-effects in the hands of a well-trained doctor with long-term experience. One might feel nothing or just some heat and some minor and beareable stinging during the treatment just at the time of the shots. There is absolutely no side-effect from these treatment modalities for any type and colour of skin, be it white, coloured/dark ethnic skin.
The Number of Sessions Depend On What?
The number of sessions depends on various parameters, including the hair colour & thickness, skin type (skin colour), reason for hirsutism and sex and the body area(s) treated.
It was earlier considered that coarse dark hair on light skin was easiest to treat, and that hair on darker skin was harder to treat.
Nowadays, SHR laser technologies from Alma Lasers can effectively be used to to treat all types of skin, be it light or dark or of any intermediate color, and are readily available for your laser hair reduction treatment at the VIP Laser Clinic Med Spa.
Advantages of Laser Hair Removal Over Other Hair Removal Methods
Laser therapy has been shown:
In many patients, hirsutism can be controlled just with laser, without using any drugs.
In excessively hairy female patients, specific medical tests need to be carried out in order to determine the necessity of
carrying out drug therapy parallel to laser therapy for hair removal.
Disadvantages of the common cosmetic measures for hirsutism (excess hair growth) are as follows:
How does SHR Laser Hair Removal work?
Super Hair Removal (SHR) is a new technology of permanent hair removal which is having a sweeping success. The working theory is heating the dermis to a target temperature gradually. At that target temperature, it damages the hair follicles and prevents re-growth effectively, meanwhile avoiding injury to the surrounding tissues. A high repetition rate of single pulses are delivered deep into the dermis, achieving high average power and therapeutically effective heat build-up, without the risk of injury and no pain virtually.
The outstanding technology of permanent Super Hair Removal (SHR) has beaten all formerly existing methods of laser/IPL/E-Light hair removal, and is actually being used with tremendous success all around the world and also at the VIP Laser Clinic Med Spa in order to achieve highly effective hair removal from any area of the body.
Why is this new technology called Super Hair Removal (SHR)?
Because Super Hair Removal (SHR) has got advantages, which are as follows:
In Case Of Significant Hirsutism
Certain areas, notably men's faces or women having significant hirsutism, may require more than 10-15 treatment sessions to achieve desired results.In addition, since hair grows in several phases (anagen, telogen, catagen) and laser or E-Light can only affect the currently actively growing follicles in the anagen phase, several sessions are needed to eliminate hair growth in all phases of growth.
It's also important to note that laser/IPL does not work well on light-colored hair and most fine vellus hair ("peachfuzz") as the lack of pigmentation in the hair does not allow the light energy from the laser/IPL to be absorbed by the hair and cause hair destruction.
Laser Hair Thinning - less costly and less time consuming
People with excessive body hair growth in places where they don't feel comfortable to have full Laser Hair Removal, can have great results with Laser Hair Thinning. This procedure deactivates a part of the hair follicles, and make the hair look thinner.
Laser Hair Thinning is achieved in a lesser number of treatment sessions as compared to full Laser Hair Removal and can be spaced out over a longer period of time to make one feel comfortable about time and budget involved. The cost for Laser Hair Thinning will be definitely less than for Complete Laser Hair Removal.
Touch-Up Laser Hair Removal Procedures
If patient wants, he/she can do a few more treatment sessions in order to get even better results.
Afterwards, patient may need one treatment session every 6 or 12 months in order to get rid of the little thin and slightly visible hair that will grow very slowly and not be a major disturbance for the person. However, most patients would revert back for permanent laser hair removal treatment only in 1 to 5 years when a new hair cycle starts. In such cases, however the person needs only 1 - 3 treatment sessions on the average.
As such, we can achieve to get no hair growth results but no one can ever stop the very thin hair to grow for ever as this process of hair growth depends on the biological programming of hair growth in the living skin for a whole life-time. Fully stopping hair growth will be possible only if we will find out how to stop biological programming of hair growth in the thickness of our skin.
Bikini Laser Hair Removal Types
There are many bikini laser hair removal styles or types to choose from. Whether you want a little or a lot off, you can select the one that's best for you.
Basic Bikini Laser Hair Removal: removes the hair outside the panty line.
When to choose: If it's your first bikini laser hair removal, or are just looking for a cleanup.
Full Bikini Laser Hair Removal: Takes the sides of the bikini line deeper than a regular bikini laser hair removal, and can also include removing some hair on top to make a more defined 'triangle' area, and trimming down the hair left shorter.
When to choose: You still want to keep hair, but want more definition than a clean-up.
French Bikini Laser Hair Removal: takes all hair off the pubis in the front (except a small strip) and continues to right before the back. It doesn't take hair off from the back like a Brazilian (see below).
When to choose: You want the area basically pretty smooth with most hair removed, but don't want to take any hair away from your behind.
Brazilian Bikini Laser Hair Removal: Takes all hair off the bikini line, front all the way to the back (yes by your bum). Sometimes a small landing strip or triangle is left in the front.
When to choose: The perfect option if you wear a thong, or want to be completely or almost hairless in front and back.
Hollywood Bikini Laser Hair Removal: Where a Brazilian may leave you with some hair left, a Hollywood removes all of it. The bottom line, you won't have any genital hair left.
When to choose: You absolutely don't want any hair in the front, in-between or in the back.
